Works as advertised; good value

  • Excerpt: This purchase replaced an identical unit that started malfunctioning after 5 years. The fact that I chose the same one indicates my satisfaction. One reason I like it is that it works perfectly with Windows8. There's essentially no setup. Connect all the pieces, then turn on each computer. It's that simple. And at the price it's hard to beat.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable, Works With Win8

It does work with Windows7!

Howard, B&H Photo
20 January 2011
  • Excerpt: I needed a KVM that works with Windows7, but didn't want to have to spend too much. This IOGear unit has met that need. The attached cables are longer than the other KVMs that I have had, which has allowed me to eliminate all the extensions that I previously needed. The one negative I would mention is the setup. When I first tried it, the computers wouldn't boot, and an error message made some reference to screen resolution.
  • Pros: Smart Features
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up

Not enough USB connectors

kobalt, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: I was looking for enough USB connectors to include the mouse and keyboard, but from what I can gather, one usb connector handles both. Other KVM switches I've used has a connector for each. This model does not.

  • Summary: If you really need to control two computers with one keyboard, mouse and monitor, set up a remote desktop connection (RDC). There are two caveats: 1) It involves more skills than plugging in wires 2) It (RDC) doesn't work on Windows Home flavor OSs. Other than these issues, I was okay with this. If the was a hardware switch, it would have been better. I returned this product in a week.

OK, but not reliable

Loki61, TigerDirect.com
18 August 2010
  • Summary: After about a year or two, this unit started to not recognize the keyboard. Mouse was ok, but no keyboard. I had to resort to connecting the KB directly to the PC, which defeats the purpose of this switch.
